Summary "This book is intended primarily to serve as an introduction to the study of child psychology in normal school, college, and university classes, but the topics have been so chosen and so treated that parents, teachers, and social workers should find it useful. The essential content of every chapter has been the direct outgrowth of the author's effort to cull from the vast literature of child psychology, and to organize for use in his own classes, such knowledge as is of first importance. Satisfactory treatment of the entire field is no longer possible in a single volume. The author has, therefore, chosen the plan of a somewhat intensive treatment of a few closely related and vitally important topics which, experience has proved, give proper perspective and leave lasting interest"--Preface.
